Sometimes I can't believe my life. For the last week I have been walking around in a state of disbelief. Last Friday I was informed by a doctor that I must have my gall bladder removed and it must be done soon. Granted, I have been having some stomach issues but I assumed stress was to blame. Fortunately, from what I've been told, I can live quite well without my gall bladder. So, I guess that's a good thing. If the surgery gets rid of my stomach problems, then I guess that's another good thing.
However, the fact that I will be having my FIFTH surgery in 2.5 years is almost too much. In fact, it will be my EIGHTH surgery in the last 6 years. That's more than 1 surgery a year!!! What the heck is going on? Believe it or not, I have always been a very healthy person. I can't believe that in less than 4 weeks I will once again be strapped to an operating table. I'm getting to know the surgery staff in our local operating room way too well. It's pretty bad when the nurses see you and say "Hey, you're back again!".
Maybe I could get the doctor to just remove all my non-vital organs while he's there and save myself from future operations. After all, I still have my tonsils and my spleen.
Seriously, I can't even believe it....
